Hey it’s a new yogamentary! On women! Shocker, right? Women practice yoga? Really though, Yogawoman is a film on how yoga, and the subculture surrounding it, has been embraced, bolstered and transformed by women the world over. It’s as much about female empowerment as it is about yoga practice. Some critics are already disagreeing over the historical facts and references noted, while others claim the premise itself is sexist.
For our own two cents, we have a really hard time getting over the dramatized cinematic yoga effect – seriously, we’re just waiting for the cut to massive explosions. “Yoga: it’s a revolution! kabooom!” Michael Bay style.
What we appreciate about the trailer are the valid points about yoga and body image, and what it means to be a woman in today’s world. Also, the truth that women have turned yoga into a multi-billion dollar industry. Yep, stretchy pants’d ladies take a bow.
Watch the trailer. Tell us what you think. Featuring star players: Seane Corn, Cyndi Lee, Elena Brower, Patricia Walden, Sharon Gannon, Linda Sparrowe.
In record numbers women are discovering their own strength, vitality, peace and power through yoga. Reclaiming this ancient spiritual path from its traditionally male form, the result is a radical transformation of modern yoga as we know it.
